Stone Mountain Carving is on a hugh mountain, which is in front of a big grassy field. During the summer people hang out in front of the carving sitting on the grass, or just hanging out with friends. During December and January, the space in front of the carving is turning into a snowy mountain. This area is transformed into... More

We went to check out the carving, but found out there were a couple of museums (discussing flora, fauna, Civil War history, and geology for the site), a lake, a golf course, sledding, and hiking. If we had been dressed more appropriately, it would've been fun to walk the mile-long, somewhat-steep path to the top of the mountain. The carving... More

If you're in the area, definitely take a short drive to see this monument. The carving into stone mountain is pretty large and there are many viewing areas.

Creative concept and skilled execution... but doing that to a mountain, I can't say that is truly respecting the land. From Wikipedia: "Stone Mountain is well-known not only for its geology, but also for the enormous rock relief on its north face, the largest bas-relief in the world. The carving depicts three Confederate figures during the Civil War: Stonewall Jackson,... More

Went here many moons ago. The laser light show at night was neat and it was an ok attraction. The low point of the trip came when I was cornered in the bathroom by some rather aggressive sexual deviants. I went into a stall, which in hindsight observed, that did not have a door and as I was turning around... More

This is a wonderful park. There is a story about the carving that you should not miss. I'm from the north and love to be educated on the history of the south. This is a don't miss park.

The size of carving looks smaller than original. Hard to imagine that the carving is more than 100 feet which appears about 20 ft. Lot of effort has gone into carving and appreciable

The night Christmas show is great and so is the carving. Take the sky ride tour. It's awesome to see the view. You can either ride back down or hike down. Either way it's a fun thing to do.
